The Land Of Stories Movie Is Coming And Chris Colfer Gets All The Hats

That sound you hear is a billion Ya fans around the world exploding.

Chris Colfer didn’t seem likely to take over the world when we first met him on Glee, even if he was one of the show’s standouts, but as that show was winding down, he began his career as an author. The Land of Stories took off in a way that few Ya books manage, despite the ever-increasing real estate the section muscles into at your local bookstore.

Now, five short years after the release of the first book, and after having become a New York Times Best-Selling author, Twentieth Century Fox and Shawn Levy‘s 21 Laps are bringing the series to the big screen. But, that’s only the beginning (though I’m not sure how to accurately predict the Ya fan base’s interest in any details, or their ability to stop screaming long
